Family Tree - Hartwell Davis

Go to content


This Genealogy site is dedicated to the memories of a family tree of Americans who were among the earliest European settlers, landing in both the northern and southern colonies, who fought in the American Revolution and every war in the history of the United States.  These proud pioneers include statesmen, politicians, soldiers, farmers, industrialist, and religious leaders from every background.  While the database includes over 13,000 names, not all will be included except in the books produced.  The short list of names does not represent all of the family tree, but only some of the major names in the tree.  Others will be linked on other pages.  The notations of relationship are to the author of this site, Hartwell Davis.
On the following pages, you will find only a partial history of the Amerine, Davis, Mageors, and Wheat families who were among the earliest settlers in the colonies. I was once told by a friend, "My family came over on the Mayflower". My response was, "Yes and my family was here to meet them".  Like many early families there was intermarriage with the Native American Indians who already lived in this great country.  Rachel Garner was said to be mostly Cherokee, but it is difficult to trace many of these connections. Grandmother Sarah Moody is listed as "Native American" on her death certificate signed by Dr. Frank Robbins.  Also in the family tree are those of Jewish heritage, but because of war and persecution, many of these families leave few records for many have been purged from history.   Please send your comments for corrections, information, or additions to  The books below are included in the Research / Books page.  Enjoy the stories, many which are from links on the internet, and some from other sources.  Eventually, the Forum page will allow you to connect to other family members, and the Links page are shared internet sites of interest.
